Courtroom Rules


Honorable Jerilyn L. Borack is a judge for the Superior Court of Sacramento County in California. She was appointed by former Governor Gray Davis in June 2002 to succeed James Ford.

Long before Borack became the Sacramento County Superior Court’s supervising family law judge, she was a child actress who landed a recurring role on “The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show” while she tagged along with her older sister to an audition for the series.

Her sister, Sheila, better known now as Democratic state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, didn’t get the part. But the producers thought 5-year-old Jerilyn would be perfect. And so began a seven-year television career that only ended when Borack decided she wanted a more normal teenage life.
